Holly Golightly & the Brokeoffs

  • Holly Golightly & the Brokeoffs

As usual our Soundboard page has a few top-notch shows to recommend for the early part of the week—and as usual, there’s some good music that isn’t written up. So before I share some highlights from the Reader‘s concert coverage, allow me to remind you about Arrested Development and Serengeti on Mon 10/15 at Double Door, Tombs and 16 on Tue 10/16 at Township, Regina Spektor on Wed 10/17 at the Chicago Theatre, and Cadence Weapon on Wed 10/17 at Schubas.

More after the jump!

Philip Montoro has been an editorial employee of the Reader since 1996 and its music editor since 2004. Pieces he has edited have appeared in Da Capo’s annual Best Music Writing anthologies in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010, and 2011. He shared two Lisagor Awards in 2019 for a story on gospel pioneer Lou Della Evans-Reid and another in 2021 for Leor Galil's history of Neo, and he’s also split three national awards from the Association of Alternative Newsmedia: one for multimedia in 2019 for his work on the TRiiBE collaboration the Block Beat, and two (in 2020 and 2022) for editing the music writing of Reader staffer Leor Galil. Philip has played scrap metal in Lozenge, drummed with the Disasters, the Afflictions, and Brilliant Pebbles, and sung for the White Outs. He wrote the column Beer and Metal from 2012 till 2015, and hopes to do so again one day. You can also follow him on Twitter.
